from "the help", octavia spencer. and music from lloyd. with cleto and the cletones. and now, in the blink of an eye, here's jimmy kimmel! ♪ it's "jimmy kimmel live" [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: well, thank you. i appreciate it. i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for visiting us here. i hope you're in a good mood tonight. you know, they say yesterday, the day people go back to work after the holidays was the most depressing day of the year. funny thing. people who don't have jobs are depressed because they don't have one and those of us who do are depressed that we do. [ laughter ] what a fun country we're in.
did any of you watch the republican caucus last night in iowa? a caucus, in case you don't know, is primarily something beavis and butt head say to each other to make each other laugh. after 16 debates and countless hours of competition. last night, republicans in iowa voted and let me be the first to say, it was a horse race. >> as long as they keep this horse race going. >> a real horse race. >> talk about the horse race. >> it appears to be a horse race. >> i think this horse race. >> this is a horse race. >> easy to get caught up in the horse race. >> still could be anybody's race. horse race. >> jimmy: maybe i wasn't the first one to say it. i missed most of last night's coverage. i was enjoying abc's excel leapt new sitcom about guys who hide their weiners with ace bandages. but i caught some of the coverage on cnn. why everyone cares so much about this, i have no idea. last action, mike huckabee won and john mccain finished fourth. he became the nominee. too early to tell anything.
it would be like if wolf blitzer stayed up all night analyzing the first rountd of "american idol" auditions, right? cnn, though, acted like they had the super bowl on their hands. and i know tissed something, i thought, unusual. here is a white cnn reporter covering the caucuses with -- look at the microphone. >> christian conservative that is just always standing for what's right. >> reporter: now, here is one of their black reporters. >> agnes, you have finished with your caucus gathering. what are your numbers? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: my kr phoicrophone is enormous. might be a subliminal message there. in case you didn't see the results from last night. here is how the candidates fared. mitt romney just barely finished first with 25% of the vote. followed very closely with rick santorum with 25%. ron paul with 21% in third. newt gingrich in fourth with 13%.
rick perry got 10%. michele bachmann finished fifth with 5%. in seventh with a bottle of ketchup, followed by snooki in eighth and last place, jon huntsman. they might be more than 100%. newt jung rich was disappointed. last week he was the fro front-runn front-runner. this week, he was fourth. half of his support came to visitors to the state fair who thought they were voting for a statue made out of butter. mitt romney had to be disappointed, too. he beat rick santorum by only eight votes. eight people decided to go with the other person. similar to what happened to jon gosselin. but -- [ laughter ] and he lost, as a result of that. but those of you might not know who rick santorum is. you know the boring stuck-up white guy you see in every tyler perry movie? that's him. he usually wears a sweater vest, which is puzzling. but i don't know how a guy can be against gay rights but for sweater vests.
[ laughter ] if that isn't flip-flopping, i don't know what is. but he loves these vests. and he's been buying more of them because people are paying attention. and he's not the only candidate who has been trying to work that swelter vest magic in his campaign. >> newt gingrich is ready for a fight. he says now that he's not going to hold back anymore against the winner, mitt romney. >> massachusetts moderate who has given no evidence in his years of massachusetts of any ability to change the culture or change the political structure or change the government. >> jimmy: i would have gone one size smaller. minnesota congresswoman michele bachmann dropped out of the race this morning. actually, she suspended her campaign. she's done running but hasn't officially dropped out. that's so she can fall kwi for federal matching funds to pay off her campaign debts. she wants the federal government to help bail her out. which is pretty much exactly what she is upset at president obama about, right?
in her speech last night, bachmann thanked her husband marcus. if you haven't seen marcus bachmann, he plays cameron on the show "modern family." he's -- well, here is michele. >> i must thank my wonderful husband of 33 years, marcus bachmann. he is the best campaigner in our family and yesterday when we were out on main street in des moines, he was buying dog sunglasses for our dog boomer, while we were out visiting many of the businesses. >> i don't understand why people think he's gay. i know a lot of straight guys that spend the day buying dog sunglasses for their dog boomer. let's watch it again, but this time, if we could, just have marcus, just marcus in this, okay? >> i must thank my wonderful husband of 33 years, marcus bachmann.
he is the best campaigner in our family and yesterday, when we were out on main street in des moines, he was buying dog sunglasses for our dog boomer while he were out visiting many of the businesses. >> jimmy: guilty! see? straight as an arrow. i understand why she needed to drop out, but could you please leave your husband with us? i'll miss her. she pronounced the word point yant with an audible g. it was quite a speech. here's some of the end. >> i've been blessed to live a wonderful life and i'm grateful to have been apart of this presidential campaign. and so i thank you, i say god bless you and god bless the united states of america. >> jimmy: and off she flew to make casseroles in the sky.
our loss is the "real housewives of minnesota" gain. so, mitt romney is the front-runner for now. this is pretty funny. according to new poll done by "60 minutes," 2% of voters believe that mitt romney's real na name, his real first name, is mittens. that's true. mittens versus sweater vest. if romney legally changes his name to mitt pemittens, he's go vote. i would love to have a president mittens. he should pick a bunch of baby cats to be his running mate. mitt p ens and kittens. romney got good news today. the self-proclaimed war lock of mexico has predicted that barack obama will not win re-election. you should probably take his prediction with a grain of salt in 2008, the grand warlock also
predicted that britney spears was going to die. and he was only, like, half right on that one. here's some of the story from something called the news. >> if you believe the man holding the cards, barack obama will lose the u.s. presidential election. [ speaking foreign language ] >> obama has expelled more latinos from his country and this time around, he won't have the latino vote. >> jimmy: wait a minute. remove his beard and mustache and those eyebrows and that's -- wait, i -- i think that's newt gingrich. [ applause ] no wonder he's so anti-obama. guillermo, do you believe in warlocks? >> no. >> jimmy: do you believe in chupacabras? >> no. >> jimmy: do you believe in zebras? >> zebras? yes. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: do we have any college football fans in our audience tonight?
all right, don't go crazy. as you probably know, last night, michigan beat virginia tech in the sugar bowl. tom was the orange bowl, so, last night, the announcer for the game was promoting it and is up nice to say it's a good thing he went into sports instead of geography. >> the only team to beat virginia tech, clemson, champions of the acc, take on another team from the state of virginia, west virginia. >> jimmy: who can keep up with all the virginias? speaking of keeping up, big kardashian news today. the family is reportedly working on a deal that would give them their own magazine. finally, they'll have an outlet to share what's going on in their lives. how about we just give them their on planet and send them there? the new magazine doesn't have a title but the way it works is interesting. you buy a lifetime subscription and then kim cancels it after three weeks. [ cheers and applause ] ah - this is something.
elsewhere in the world of magazines, day coe fa fanning, she's on the cover of the new issue of "cosmopolitan." she's only 17. that had no -- look at the headluns. um, vagina, are you okay down there? too naughty to say here, but you have to try this sex trick. to be on the cover of "cosmo," shouldn't you be old enough to drink one? and more more thing on the subjects of drinks, we have a security guard here at the show whose name is adelina. her job is to protect me, specifically. and to do that, she stays alert by drinking a lot of coffee. and sometimes creamer. she sits there and drinks kof fee outside my office all day. so, for fun, some members of the staff decided to accidently interfere with her coffee time. and once again, as she usually is, adelina was oblivious.

don't, there's nothing left. i swear i'll tear it all down. all that we have, do not question my resolve. >> i got in the middle of this because you didn't. to find out who -- >> no! the truth! >> jimmy: please welcome kelsey grammer! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: well, that's definitely not frazier we saw there. >> no. the truth. >> jimmy: how are you? >> things are great, thank you. >> jimmy: going well? the show is going great? >> very good. >> jimmy: that's god to be a good thing. >> very good thing. took awhile to get it started and sold it, last october and started shooting in chicago. it's been great. >> jimmy: enjoy shooting in chicago? >> chicago's been fantastic,
yeah. >> jimmy: you shoot in the city? >> yeah, all over. really embraced the show. and the thing about chicago is, you know, the performances are big. kind of an epic kind of show. and the city is kind of that way, so -- it seems to be a really good fit. >> jimmy: i call it the city of big shoulders. >> others have called it that, too. >> jimmy: is that right? people are always steaming ins stuff. how were your holidays? >> fantastic. at home with my kid and my bride kate. >> jimmy: you have a new bride? kate walsh. not the one from "private practice." >> a few years ago, i was talking to a lawyer -- [ laughter ] and i said, listen, it's probably important that you understand i'm seeing someone now. her nate me is kate walsh and h went -- the kate walsh that i think it is?
and i said, well, i'm not sure. and he said, well, i just hope you guys have something very serious in writing already. >> jimmy: oh, really? >> not sure why. >> jimmy: wow. >> that was the extent of all he said. >> jimmy: how did you guys meet, you and kate? >> we actually met on a plane to england. >> jimmy: that's romantic. >> it was very romantic. >> jimmy: she was working on the plane? >> she was. and we went out for a coffee, several days later. and had, like, just this magical night in the snow in london, around christmas time. two years ago. so. >> jimmy: what do your friends and family say, guess what, i'm getting married again? >> most of them say, it's about time. >> jimmy: oh, they do? [ laughter ] >> you're the marrying kind of guy. >> jimmy: what i would say is, she doesn't have a reality show, does she if because that's not what you want. >> no, that's not what you want. >> jimmy: and up had a good christmas? what did you get your new bride? >> i actually got my new bride
several things, but mostly jewelry. >> jimmy: right. okay. >> couple of nice things. >> jimmy: you get help picking that stuff out? >> no, no. i get the approval, you know? i get the -- this is -- christmas morning is -- [ laughter ] or it's like this. if it's not so good, it's like. [ laughter ] we can go to the shop. >> jimmy: that's a great way to ruin christmas, with one little look. you brought the gift that your wife gave you. >> this is what kate gave me. >> jimmy: it looks like an ebay item. >> she went to great lengths to get this. there are many reasons she bought this for me. very significant for us. she's a huge elvis fan. >> jimmy: all right. >> we actually honeymooned in las vegas, which is -- i guess, not done all that much, but -- >> jimmy: no, no, yeah.
>> for us it was important. and in a moment you'll know why. >> jimmy: okay. this is birth control? [ laughter ] congratulations. [ laughter ] >> no, this is -- >> jimmy: you have to be careful with this thing. >> this is valuable now. >> jimmy: all right. this is an original half sheet for ""viva las vegas." >> jimmy: look at that. good-looking poster. what is the meaning of this for you? >> well, this is -- we started watching this movie together and when kate asks me now things like, what is your favorite movie pops, she calls me pops because i used to make popcorn. >> jimmy: great. >> guy in a little hat working behind the concession stand? but the reasons are obvious why, you know, women would love
elvis. and the reasons are obvious why men would love ann-margret. and so i had told her that i always had a crush on ann-margret and that's what sort of started our look for this movie. >> jimmy: you like the actual movie, as well? >> i do. it's terrific. >> jimmy: what is the plot? >> there's not much of a plot. >> jimmy: what is it? >> boy meets girl. boy -- >> jimmy: sungs? >> sort of. sort of misses, loses girl, sort of gets her back. >> jimmy: it sounds great. >> and there's a big road race. the las vegas grand prix is in it or something. >> jimmy: and i'm guessing boy wins grand prix. she didn't get it framed for you, huh? i don't note about that, kelsey. this could be a bad omen. >> it was cooler to get it in the tube, actually. >> jimmy: so i've heard. [ laughter ] >> you know? atta boy. >> jimmy: you are a grandfather now, as well. con garage lauxs.
>> isn't that fun? >> jimmy: for the first time. [ applause ] you -- was that a fun thing for christmas time? >> ah, emmett was delightful at christmas. he's quite a kid. he's very focused. very relaxed. he doesn't complain a lot, either. he's a blessing. it was shocking. my daughter spencer and emmett and my daughter greer and my daughter mason and my son jude spent the night. >> jimmy: does kate allow -- will she allow the boy to call her grandmagr grammer? >> i'm not sure. >> jimmy: we'll hash it out. give her a call. we'll be right back with kelsey grammer.

>> jimmy: work up a speech when you get one. is it exciting? >> it's very exciting. it's wonderful, yeah. i've been out of the scene a little bit, last few years, kind of took a backseat, thought i would retool a lull built after a couple of appearances on your show, actually. >> jimmy: you're not blaming me for that? >> not exactly. i've been on two shows since "frazier" and one of them was called "back to you" and the other one was called -- i can't remember myself. "hank." right, "hank." and oddly enough, i appeared on your show the day before each of them was canceled. [ laughter ] don't answer the phone tomorrow. >> so -- when i got the call to come on the show here, i was like -- [ laughter ] that cokimmel, the show killer. "boss" has been picked up for a

choice in hollywood. be a republican. >> jimmy: is there somebody you like from among -- it seems like -- >> i'm not really sure yet. you know -- it's -- it's romney and santorum right now. >> jimmy: yeah. >> i don't know what might emerge or change. but it's probably romney and, you know, he's probably going to do a good job but the whole -- >> jimmy: you are brimming with enthusiasm. >> the whole primary -- i felt the same way about obama and clinton four years ago. i thought, well, whoever. santorum is interesting, because he is what -- conservatives like to, like a guy to be what they are, you know? they like what you get -- what you see is what you get. >> jimmy: you think that's why he's wearing the sweater vests? >> it could be. very successful in '80s sitcoms. >> jimmy: that's right. michael j. fox. a lot of sweater vests. >> all looking for another time. [ applause ] >> jimmy: you -- woody harrelson

>> well, i'm very competitive and angie could take me. i'm just going to stick with brad. >> jimmy: going to these events and these sort of things, who have you been most excited to meet? >> oh, man. i've been most excited to meet oprah winfrey. >> jimmy: oh, i've heard of her. [ applause ] >> i have to tell you, after doing this film, the one thing people do when they recognize you, especially if you like their character, they want to hug you. i thought, that is a weird thing. until i met oprah winfrey. i melt her and i thought i was going to be very regal and, hi, oprah, so nice to meet you, but instead i was like, oh, my god, i love you so much! and i did really, really hyper active and just sweating and just holding her in a death grip. >> jimmy: you sweated on oprah? oh, wow. >> and i wouldn't let her go. >> jimmy: really? and were there snipers or anything? >> she probably was like, yes, yes, it's great to meet you octavia. >> jimmy: she probably gets that
a lot, though, i would imagine. >> she was so sweet. it was like a halo. you walk into a room. she could be up there, you're like, oprah's in the room. >> jimmy: you feel like you had any super powers after touching oprah? >> well -- no. that's all her. i wish some of it rubbed off on me. >> jimmy: you also screened the movie at the white house, which had to be exciting. >> it was great. but i have to go back. >> jimmy: why? >> i have to go back to the white house because i met the first lady and i hadn't met the president and now because when we were doing our international tour, i -- we thought we were off the record, the interview ended and i told them about this bet that i made that if they elected the president -- >> jimmy: who is tate? >> tate is the director of "the help." it's not that i thought he wouldn't be or couldn't be elected, i thought that america wasn't ready for an african-american president and i
said, ah, if america elects a black man to be president, i will run down this street naked. >> jimmy: oh, really? what street was it? >> our street. >> jimmy: it wasn't "sesame street," was it? >> and it was horrible, because i'm thrilled, i was thrilled to run down the street but i would not do it naked. >> jimmy: you wouldn't do it naked? >> i did it in my underwear. >> jimmy: technically, he's only half african-american, so, it's okay to be half naked. >> jimmy, i love you! >> jimmy: thank you. >> i felt like i -- i was if my bra and panties. this is an area you don't get to see, unless you buy me dinner, and i -- i had to, like, run out in my underwear. >> jimmy: who was there watching you? >> oh, the whole street. because i wasn't naked. he said, we, since you're not
complete lly naked, you have to run down the street and say, "a black man is in the white house!" [ laughter ] so people were coming out, like, what is going on? and i literally, i think i set a record for the 50 yard dash, because i was out, okay? >> jimmy: i'm going to say suffer, but i don't know if you are suffering, from a condition called sleep eating. spl >> oh, yes. who told you? >> jimmy: somebody who works here knows you, but they said you will, like -- how do you eat in your sleep? >> easily. >> jimmy: you'll get up? >> it's crazy. i didn't realize i had this condition until i kept finding spoons or -- i seriously, i'm like, how do we keep losing all the spoons? and they were in my room with peanut butter in weird places.
>> jimmy: you do this every night? >> no, when i'm stressed out. i do a lot. which is funny because i don't understand why i can't lose a pound! >> jimmy: well, you have to stay awake all night. that's the only solution. it's great to meet you. congratulations. i hope you do well at the golden globes. i hope you bring george clooney home or something. octavia spencer, everyone.
